Here's the new challenge for inquiring minds: if there is a Bulwer Lytton contest for the worst possible opening of a novel, and if we are agreed that the Poet McGonagall is in a class of his own, what would the equivalent be in drama? Would it be the worst-structured play? The worst opening line? The worst exchange of dialog? The worst directing idea? And after whom should this contest be named?

Currently the leading contender is CATS, Crap Award for Theatre and Sundries. Surely you can do better than this?
